We are a busy creative family with 4 fab children, 6 tiny ponies, 8 ducks, 4 hens, 4 dogs, 2 tortoises and a cat!!!! We have a lovely home are looking for a really fun, energetic, kind practical couple to come and help us in our busy bustling home in the run up to and over Christmas/New Year this year. We would love an extra couple of pairs of hands to help with everything and anything that goes with keeping that lot healthy, happy, fed, clean and exercised (ponies - child sized only) and to get everywhere Christmassy!
Babysitting / child care
Cooking / shopping
Help in the house
You'll probably learn (or perfect) how to be super organised and multi-task and hopefully have a lovely English Christmas. It would be great if you were vaguely animal savvy but experience with children is essential. It would be great if you had an idea about some stuff but really happy to explain and show you the ropes and all our animals are really easy to do.
We'd love help with everything that goes with running a busy family, animal and child rich, home! General animal care, childcare - taking to clubs etc - light housework and tidying, some simple cooking, ideally a bit of help with the laundry and ironing etc bit of yardwork (helping with the ponies) and very light gardening (not so much at this time of year)
We have a lovely one bedroomed apartment available for you to live in. Generally people have had lunch and supper with the family Monday to Friday and looked after themselves in the apartment the rest of the time but that would be up to you.
We live on the edge of the beautiful Cotswolds and have a little car available (subject to the relevant permissions and experience) for you to go and explore the local sights and attractions. We have wonderful walking locally. For longer excursions there are really good transport links into the mainline rail network. We are a creative family. It is a busy environment.
